It's time to be reunited with the world! Whether it`s the next business trip or the long-awaited holiday, many of you are starting to plan your next trip again. The airlines of the Lufthansa Group are reacting to the changed booking preferences and are now moving from short-term to longer-term flight planning.
Starting today, the summer timetable of Lufthansa, SWISS and Brussels Airlines, which is valid through 24 October 2020, will be implemented in the booking systems. Following the successful restart, Austrian Airlines will gradually expand its flight offer in the coming weeks.
By the end of October, over 90 percent of all originally planned short- and medium-haul destinations and over 70 percent of long-haul destinations will be served again*. Customers will thus have access to an extensive worldwide route network via all Lufthansa Group hubs.
Flight cancellations and rebooking options
With the publication of the summer flight schedule, necessary flight cancellations will also be made. Passengers affected by the flight cancellations can rebook their flight. Alternatively, passengers who wish to change their routing can make a rebooking free of charge.
In order to ensure that the offer corresponds to the current demand, Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa, SWISS and Brussels Airlines are asking all passengers whose bookings are affected by a flight cancellation to confirm that they wish to use the new and/or remaining flights as booked. For this purpose, affected passengers are either contacted by their travel agent or receive an automated email*.
Rebooking options for new bookings through 31 August 2020
You and your travellers can book your next trip without worries. With the airlines of the Lufthansa Group you can rebook at any time, free of charge, for a new travel date up to the end of 2021. This now also applies to all new bookings up to 31 August 2020.
